The Salt River is such a beautiful place to hike and watch for wildlife. We went there to find the wild horses but didn't find any. We did get there around 1:00 pm. Several different people said, they had seen the horses in the morning. Not too disappointed as there was much beauty all around us. After hiking along the river, we stopped to rest and were sitting by the rapids listening to the sounds of the river. Some old men were fly fishing to the right of us and we were taking in a small piece of God's beauty. Red tailed hawks and several types of herons were flying past us as we were gazing at Four Peaks in the distance and admiring the golden reflections cast onto the river. It was very peaceful. We were there the last day of January so the temperatures were nice. Remember to always bring water while hiking, you just may end up walking further than you thought you were going to. If you park your car, you need to buy a Tonto Pass. You can now get them online. We bought our pass for six dollars at the Baja gas station. We will definitely return to the Salt River and try to find the wild horses.
